A year ago, Calvin posted a 3-0 record before its 2020 campaign was cut short by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Calvin is scheduled to open its season on March 12 when it travels to Wheaton College (Il.). Calvin will face the University of Chicago and Wheaton in single games both March 12 and March 13 with all four games scheduled to be played at Wheaton.
